Designed for those who don't have severe enough mobility issues to require a more elaborate bath lift, these bathtub rails can add just enough security and support for those recovering from illness or injury or those who are moderately infirm. They are available in removable and permanently mounted options. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.
